I hit my goal and then some. I should have had six chapters done, I now have nine including the one from last week.
Got past that slump and pushed myself to getting some words down:
Monday 10/14: I finished 4 chapters
Wednesday 10/16: I finished 1 chapter
Friday 10/18: I finished 2 chapters
Today 10/19: I finished 1 chapter.
Hopefully this is a good sign of a pattern. I’m caught up now, and even if I hit a slump again, hopefully that three chapter padding will help.
Side note: I decided earlier this month that one thing to encourage myself to keep to my schedule was to enter a contest.
Pikes Peak Writers does a contest for each conference year. Since I have finished, other than some editing, I want to start putting the book out there.
Yesterday I put in my entry. I had to submit a short synopsis – that was not a joy to write – as well as a query, and a part of my story.
I have never been so nervous!
